Orioles | Chris Tillman notches fourth win

Sun, 08 May 2016 15:01:05 -0700

Baltimore Orioles SP Chris Tillman overcame a three-run first inning on Sunday, May 8, shutting down the Oakland Athletics' offense thereafter in a 6-3 victory. Tillman gave up six hits and matched a season high with four walks but fanned seven over 6 1/3 innings.

Fantasy Tip: Tillman was bailed out by his offense's 11-run outburst in this one, but he has been the Orioles' ace without question so far this season. The 28-year-old, who entered this season with a 6.65 K/9 mark over the first seven big-league seasons, stands at 9.4 after this one. The three runs allowed marked the second-highest total Tillman has allowed in seven starts, while the seven strikeouts were his fewest in his last three outings. Keep him in the lineup at home against the Detroit Tigers on Friday.

Baltimore Orioles SP Chris Tillman posted his third consecutive quality start Tuesday, May 3, against the New York Yankees, allowing just one run over seven innings.

Tillman has allowed three runs over his past three starts covering 19 2/3 innings.

Fantasy Tip: Tillman matched a career high with nine strikeouts, accomplishing the feat for the second straight outing. He has re-emerged as a must-start in all fantasy leagues and DFS play.

Orioles | Chris Tillman falters again

Fri, 25 Mar 2016 15:05:38 -0700

Baltimore Orioles SP Chris Tillman allowed five earned runs on three walks and six hits in spring action Friday, March 25, and he also hit a batter. Tillman has a 9.31 ERA in 9 2/3 innings in the Grapefruit League.

Fantasy Tip: Tillman came into this season as a very mediocre pitcher in the major leagues, and his performance this spring surely took him off the radar of anyone that was considering him in deep mixed leagues as rotation depth. Look elsewhere.

Orioles | Chris Tillman tests hip

Tue, 15 Mar 2016 16:04:49 -0700

Baltimore Orioles SP Chris Tillman (hip) tested his injured hip in Grapefruit League action Tuesday, March 15, and allowed two earned runs on five hits while walking three and striking out one in 1 2/3 innings versus the Toronto Blue Jays.

Fantasy Tip: Tillman should have enough time to get ready for the start of the regular season. He's been consistently mediocre throughout his career especially in the strikeout department, making him bench material in deep mixed leagues, at best.
